      Dear Friends:
      On NPR's Morning Edition last week, Nina Totenberg
      said that if the Supreme
      Court supports Congress, it is in effect the end of
      the National Public
      Radio (NPR), NEA and the Public Broadcasting
      System(PBS). PBS, NPR and the arts are facing major
      cutbacks in funding. In spite of the efforts of each
      station to reduce spending costs and streamline
      their services, some government officials believe that
      the funding
      currently going to these programs is too large a
      portion of funding for
      something which is seen as not worthwhile. The only
      way that our
      representatives can be aware of the base of support
      for PBS and funding for
      these types of programs is by making our voices heard.
      Please add your name
      to this list and forward it to friends who believe in
      what this
      stands for. This list will be forwarded to the
      President and the Vice
      President of the United States. This petition is being
      passed around the
      Internet. Please add your name to it so that funding
      can be maintained for
      NPR, PBS, the NEA.

      HOW TO SIGN FORWARD: IT'S EASY: Please keep this
      petition rolling. Do not
      reply to me. Please sign and forward to others to
      sign. (If you prefer not
      to sign, please send to the E-mail address indicated
      below.) DON'T WORRY
      ABOUT DUPLICATES. This is being forwarded to several
      people at once to add
      their names to the petition. It won't matter if many
      people receive the same
      list as the names are being managed.
      This is for anyone who thinks NPR/PBS is a
      worthwhile expenditure of
      $1.12 /year of their taxes, a petition follows. If you
      sign, please forward
      on to others. If not, please don't kill it: send it to
      the Email address
      listed here: wein2688@....
      If you happen to be the 150th, 200th, 250th, etc.,
      signer of this
      petition, please forward a copy to:
      wein2688@.... This way
      we can keep track of the lists and organize them.
      NOTE: It is preferable that you SELECT (highlight)
      the entirety of this
      letter and then COPY it into a new outgoing message,
      rather than simply
      forwarding it. In your new outgoing message, add your
      name to the
      bottom of the list, then send it on. Or if option is
      available, do a SEND
      AGAIN.
